Modern, digitally controlled electric motors supply lots of torque, a rotational force which is as good at turning propellers and fan blades as it is wheels. Topics include vortex dynamics, steady and unsteady airfoil theory, indicial methods, unsteady compressible flow, basics of physical acoustics, sound generation by moving bodies and turbulence, combustion noise. A key technology enabling this mission is Magnetic Shielding in Hall thrusters, described below. The company plans to develop and commercialize a new hybrid rocket propulsion technology and leverage an ultra-lightweight, advanced composite material to manufacture dual-propulsion suborbital space planes.

Complete airframe-engine performance characteristics for both ground-test and flight-test conditions are predicted with experimentally verified analysis methods. He is currently an editor of the Aerospace Book Series of the Cambridge University Press (2010-). Colonel Donald Ware, USAF (ret.) told me that he had recently learned from a three-star General that the VentureStar X-33 has an electrogravitics (antigravity) system on board (6).

Goal of this research is to develop technologies for a myriad of space and planetary surface systems, including life support, thermal control, waste disposal, and resource regeneration. Most of the hydrogen flow enters the top of the engine enclosure, but part is split off to feed a heat exchanger on the walls of the rocket nozzle, thereby cooling the nozzle and preheating the hydrogen. The Mach number at the nozzle exit is given by the perfect gas expansion expression where Pa is the pressure of the ambient atmosphere.
